Synopsis:
Part spy thriller, part mystery, part psychological suspense story, John le Carre's most intriguing and absorbing masterpiece is brought to the screen in this stunning BBC adaptation. Magnus Pym has disappeared, setting off a massive man-hunt. One of Britain's top spies, Pym is also searching - for his true identity, hidden beneath a lifetime of deception. His quest takes him from his relationship with his con-man father to his betrayal of everything close to him: his wife, his country, even the high-ranking Eastern agent whom he befriended. Pursued by his agency and his enemies, Pym must find himself before his hunters find him.

Classic Le Carre but too slow - A Perfect Spy: Series review by Pete W

Spoiler Alert
18/09/2010

Typical Le Carre country but not up to the standard of the Smiley series. The story seems too slow moving and drawn out. Ray McAnally is excellent as Pym's conman dad and Peggy Ashcroft steals several scenes but Peter Egan just didn't work for me as the lead character.
